Hi there. I am interested in having spotted turtles in my pond. I have done quite a lot of research and the consensus appears to be that this species are particularly well suited to keep in a garden pond. I don't have a filter in the pond but there are lots of oxygenating plants. Thank you. Nick B

Hi. Thanks for getting back. My garden pond is roughly oblong, 8 foot by 5 foot. One foot deep but the shallow end is only a few inches. It has been there at least twenty years - we moved in 5 years ago and the previous owner had it there many years. (I presume this is better than a new pond?) Anyway, thanks for taking the time.
Nick

That's a really good size and well established, but far too shallow at the moment for hibernation as it needs to be 2-3ft deep minimum depending on where you are and how exposed the pond is.
